Here is an insightful tete-a-tete with Sushma:
1. What has been your experience working here at Alcor.
It’s just been an amazing journey! Each day has added something new in my development. The flexibility, training, accountability and empowerment I am exposed to, in my role, motivates me, while the approachability to the senior management, the continuous learning from team members, growing together as a team just makes each work day exciting and invigorating. This sense of continuous learning across hierarchies and verticals gives me a sense of pride and satisfaction.
2. Why do you feel proud to be an Alcorian?
We have accomplished a lot in a short span of time! That’s a proud feeling for me. I joined 2.5 years back and the growth of this company, the potential for personal growth and the sense of ‘one-ness’ I get here, makes me proud and happy.
3. Tell us about a few defining moments of yours at Alcor.
The motivation to work here is every day- Speaks a lot about this company! In my consulting, customer facing role- a successful launch, kudos from a customer- all are defining moments. Early this year, at one of the Go-Lives, the customer talked about our work done for them adding value to their day to day operations- defining moment again! Middle of this year, I took ownership of HR service delivery at Alcor. With me getting trained, I trained a team, we as a team completed our certifications, we had to do a lot of self training and learning, had to do work shops with requirements and show excellence in my consulting role. The Management recognized my efforts. These instances motivate me to do more!
